Jérôme Coppel (born 6 August 1986 in Annemasse, Haute-Savoie) is a former French road bicycle racer.
He and compatriot Romain Sicard were the focus of a four-page spread in L’Equipe‘s weekly magazine, with the headline Bientôt un crack française ? ("Soon a French champ?"). His presence helped Saur-Sojasun gain its invitation to the 2011 Tour de France, where he finished 14th in the general classification and third in the young rider (white jersey) competition.
Coppel left Saur–Sojasun at the end of the 2012 season, and joined Cofidis for the 2013 season. In December 2014 he was announced as part of the squad for the IAM Cycling team for 2015. The French time trial specialist will hang up his bike after the Tour de l’Ain 2016. “My body and head do not follow each other anymore,” says Coppel.
